[Internships] OLPC for Haiti - Thomassique

I'm working on several projects for Haiti, specifically ones benefiting 
the educational outcomes of Haitian Children in a small town called 
Thomassique.   The need is so great but the resources are so few.  There 
is no electricity; most of the schools work without instructional 
resources; most of the instruction consists of about 40 kids sitting on 
benches with a 10" bench table in front of them listening to the teacher 
and watching him/her write on a free-standing blackboard.  Only the 
richest schools have textbooks and few kids have paper to take notes. 
How can I get involved with the OLPC Program? 
Thank you,
